Is this considered to be part of the Abel family or the 1.2/2.0 family or something completely different?

Based on naming convention and aesthetics, it's probably safe to assume "something completely different".

...but I have no idea.

After Noah I kind of expect there would be international GB for Abel or 2.0 Add, hopefully this one is as good.

I'm glad to see an actual Matrix GB outside of China regardless of how disappointed I am in this particular board. Hopefully the input received here leads to a successful group buy with lots of happy owners. I'll continue to wait patiently for an opportunity to get one of the other recent Matrix offerings without resorting to aftermarket or instantly sold out flash sales. Good luck team Matrix!

Cool stuff. Would love to see the tabs around the spacebar adjusted a bit.

edit: and also forget those side mount tabs  :eek:
We will consider your advice. Thank you!

Interesting all around.  I'll definitely follow closely.  Although, I'm sure I'm not in the minority here in still wanting a more traditional Matrix TKL available to the outside market.  Maybe next offering?
Yes. We will run international gb for a traditional Matrix TKL in the future for sure!

I prayed for a 2.0 Add International Group Buy... but I think this might be better.
My wallet needs to be ready.

EDIT: on another note, I've got some questions about that plate upgrade
  • Can you tell us more about it? Maybe some physical tests?
  • How does it compare vs regular plates?
  • Since it's such a well-engineered piece, will it only come with an aluminum option?
We will send it to some streamer to test it before GB. And yes, it only comes with Alu.

Nice job as always Matrix Lab team!

My suggestions are:
- remove side tabs, adjust space bar tabs
- rework usb port, circle doesn't match rest of aesthetic

Also, I'm intrigued about that textured middle inner piece, is it foam or alu?

This board support stepped caps lock right? Also, appreciate if you can offer brass weight and half plate option.

Will you allow buyers to choose colors for different piece like Noah? And I hope there will be E-white.

Count me in. As long as the colour options are good and wide. I didn't join the Noah GB because I couldn't get the colour configurations I wanted even though the same colours were available before in China.

Let's gooo.

Agree   they never follow convention  and they've got  Great Everything.

 So   you can always expect a good product.   I'm excited to see how this keyboard goes! and maybe if I have enough money...  oh, we'll see :)

I'm curious Mr. Albert. You have a proto already, yes? How does this modified top mount compare to a traditional top mount in terms of typing, feel, acoustics, etc?
The more I look at this TKL, the more I get intrigued and interested. Everything will depend on how good this new mount will feel, how great that new flex plate will be, and ofc money when this decides to run.

Haven't seen these kind of relief cuts on the plate before. Would be pretty interesting to try this in different materials but I'm in regardless.

We have contacted some streamers and they will build it and test it before GB running. :)

For the Me, can you please offer a middle gray/50% coating option. The Me design is restrained and has some great proportioned bezels perfect to highlight keycaps and take focus away from the body. It would be nice to see the colored accent cover the full width of the rear. Also, not a big fan of the circular USB port hole, reminds me of recent kbdfans unfortunately.

As always, I do look forward to the random colors for the accent and playing the keycap matching game  :)

> Middle gray: A tone that is perceptually about halfway between black and white on a lightness scale.
See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Middle_gray

Please consider R4/R5 1.5u Super and 1u Alt
